Looking Back and Looking Forward: Diversity and Anti-Racism in Rush’s Past and Present

September 30, 2020 | 5:30-6:30 p.m. | Virtual event

Join us for a virtual event featuring Rush University Medical Center archivist, Nathalie Wheaton and a student representative for Rush’s Racial Justice Action Committee and current third-year in the medical college, Niyi Soetan. We will start by exploring Rush’s past and how David Jones Peck, MD, received a doctor of medicine degree from Rush Medical College in 1847, making him the first Black person to receive the distinction from an American medical school. While learning more about Dr. Peck and his history at Rush, Niyi will help connect the past to the present with his personal experiences in medical school as a Black man an how that dovetails with current diversity and anti-racism efforts at Rush.

Register today at Looking Back and Looking Forward registration.

Virtual alumni events for the coming months will be announced soon. Updates will be shared on this website, via email and on the Rush University Alumni Facebook Page. If you have questions about upcoming alumni events, please contact The Office of Alumni Relations  at (312)942-7199 or
